Albert M. Booker, Esq.

U. S. Commissioner,

Columbia, S. C.


This Department is in receipt of your letter of the 7th instant, and in compliance with your request, I enclose herewith copies of the Act of Congress known as the "Enforcement Act." The laws of the United States are furnished from time to time to the Judges, Marshals, Attorneys, and Clerks of the Courts of the United States by the Department of the Interior; but I am not informed whether that Department also furnishes the U. S. Commissioners with the laws. I would suggest an application on your part to the Secretary of the Interior.

Very respectfully,

A. J. Falls,

Chief Clerk
